I really like the look and feel of the pens. The barrel is glossy and the imprint stands out. The plastic is very solid (as compared to bendable or flimsy-feeling). The imprint ink is substantial – almost like an enamel – and can’t be rubbed or scraped off. The pen writes right away, it’s smooth writing, and the ink dries really quickly.
Another pen I’d ordered from elsewhere was the exact opposite. It was made of a softer plastic that could be bent by writing pressure; it didn’t take long before the imprint wore off or flaked off; the ink blobbed a lot and smudged…and, it was a more expensive pen.
Just compared the ink cartridges between the not-good pens and these new ones from you, and there’s about 20% more ink in the pens I received from you.
